Using produce from their own dairy herds, The Dunne Family from Killowen Farm and the Coopers from Featherbed Farm are creating award-winning yogurt and ice cream on their Wexford farms.
In the July/August issue of Irish Country Magazine, Pauline Dunne from Killowen Farm and Simon Cooper from Featherbed Ice Cream share the journey of their thriving food businesses. This article is brought to you by Dunnes Stores.
Killowen Farm and their team of thirty dedicated staff, have won countless awards for their yogurt products and they attribute their success to the dedication of both teams: “The Great Taste and Blas na hÉireann awards over the years are a testament to the quality of the yogurt, the local fruit and the commitment that both Simply Better and Killowen have given to our Simply Better yogurts.”
